After a long conversation with various members of the OC we decided on sticking with the shield logo that is on every uniform and banner from the day the school was founded. This is a chevron representing faithful service, with wheat sheaf representing the harvesting of the bearers hopes, a crown representing crowning achievements, victory and sovereignty and books representing counsel and learning.
We sourced coloured silks to match the crest alongside the traditional gold and coloured metal threads, which have been used for centuries in the embroidery of crests. The metal threads come from Benton and Johnson the UK’s last metal thread maker.
The piece was worked on white silk, and areas padded out to add definition, we also added the school moto in red gold.
